We use FedEx for the Omni Stands, and USPS for everything else.
Delivery time depends on where you are located and what items you order. We send out orders Monday-Thursday and we will typically ship your order within 2-3 business days from the date your order was placed, unless busy with other details. Orders with an Omni Stand can take 5-7 business days to ship. Stands also take 4-6 business days in transit with FedEx Ground. Smaller items (DVDs, Cervical Traction Unit, Daisy Chains, etc) are shipped Priority and will take around 3 business days. Most swings are shipped either with FedEx Ground (4-6 business days in transit) or Priority Mail (1-3 days in transit. depending on the shipping location). We are located in California. If you live on the East Coast expect the delivery time to be on the higher end.
We have noticed the Postal Service struggles with poster tubes. Posters are usually the last item to arrive and can take days longer than the other items in your order.
We cannot guarantee any shipping times. Once the package is picked up by the carrier it is out of our control.
Yes. Please contact us to pay the additional shipping fees.
We do ship to Hawaii. All items to Hawaii are sent with USPS including the Omni Stand. Delivery is slow and can be delayed. We cannot guarantee any delivery date or time.
All international orders are shipped with the US Postal Service. Once the package reaches the destination country it is turned over to the local postal service. At this point tracking is no longer available.
To most countries orders are sent Priority Mail International which takes 6-12 business days.
Every country is different. Please look into your countries import regulations.
For most international customers all you have to do is place an order. The correct shipping will be added when you enter your shipping address. If you live in a country we’ve never shipped to before you will get an error message. Please contact us with your location and what you would like to order. We will give you a quote on the shipping price and add your country to our checkout system.
All returns must be post marked within 30 days of receiving your order. We have a 15% restocking fee. If the returned items show damage caused by the purchaser we may deduct additional fees.
Other inversion devices such as Teeter Hang Up inversion tables and gravity boots, while functionable devices for inversion, are very limited in their scope of possibilities. Firstly, there are only one or two indicated ways to invert on these devices; secondly, they are intended only for inversion and basic stretching/core work. Omni Gym yoga wings present so many other possibilities in terms of personal fitness and well-being. Strength training, aerial yoga, stretching and stress relief are just naming a few. For the price of the swing itself, you get much more bang for your buck. See Yoga Swing comparison page for more details.
Many customers ask what the difference is between our yoga swings and others found on the market.
Our swings are all ORIGINAL products: the first yoga swing was invented in 2001 by Omni Gym™ owner, Anthony Cardenas. It is the only swing on the market that has gone through such constant evolution and improvements to bring you the latest innovation in yoga swing technology in our star products: the Omni Swing Pro™ and Omni Gym™.
There are many yoga swing products and brands to choose from, our only goal is to continue selling a superior product and let it be known that all products from Omni Gym™ are originals and neither copycats nor infringements of any yoga swing patent (being as we own them).
Lastly, all other swing models on the market today are inferior versions of our Omni Yoga Swing Original and you will not find the Omni Swing Pro™ nor the Omni Gym™ sold anywhere else.
There are several key differences between the Omni Swing Pro™ and other swings sold on the market. We have eliminated the uncomfortable hard plastic sliders, the external nylon adjuster cords, the slippery nylon fabric, and the limiting S-Hooks that others still use. To learn more about all the newest features in our suspension swing technology, see Omni Swing Pro vs Yoga Swing for a complete description.
The sling refers to the middle hammock section of the swing. It does not come with any handles. The swing is the product in its entirety including the middle hammock and the handles.
When assembled, the Omni Stand adjusts from a minimum of 7 feet, 11 inches tall to a maximum of 8 feet, 3 inches when using height extenders. So you have a capability to fit your stand under standard 8 foot ceilings and to increase height for those with longer torsos. Additional height extenders can also be purchased. The circular base has a diameter of 7 and a half feet and the frame is made out of 1.5 inch diameter round metal tubing.
When dissembled the longest piece measures 42 inches.
The Omni Stand does not need to be bolted down unless you plan on doing a lot of vigorous swinging back and forth. If this is the case (such as may be with children) securing the stand to the floor or an adjacent wall may be a good idea.
When taking your yoga swing outdoors or attaching to an anchor that is not the Omni Stand you can hang your swing with or without the Trapeze System. Depending on the height of your anchor, we recommend using your daisy chains to hang the swing; you will have more height adjustment options. You can attach the Trapeze System to TWO daisy chains hung about a 16 inches apart.
You also have the option to NOT USE the Trapeze System and hang your swing directly from the Daisy Chains. You will lose the 360 degree swivel and bounce with this set-up, but when traveling it may be easier to leave the Trapeze System at home.
If you’re not limited by ceiling height, we recommend ordering the tallest stand. You always have the option of lower swing-height adjustments and it is better to have more room than not. If you are a shorter person you may do fine with the shortest stand (as you will be able to invert fully without a problem), but your taller friends will have wished for the taller stand.
Also take into consideration that for shorter persons, the taller the stand the further away from the floor you will find yourself, and this may be a deciding factor if you plan to use the floor often in maneuvers.
Your yoga swings should have at least 6 feet of distance between the two, even more if users are very tall, in order to have enough swinging room front to back.
Swings may be placed side by side with a minimum of 4 feet between each swing, so that outstretched arms do not touch.
If using the DNA ladder and yoga swing together, you will want to reserve even more space as you get more height leverage using the DNA ladder. We recommend placing the ladder within 3-4ft of the yoga swing and a distance of at least 6 feet on either side of the set-up before placing another swing/ladder set-up. Of course feel free to experiment and find out what set-up works best with your space and according to what kind of movements you intend on doing.
Here are two diagrams for ideas:
Yes. If you wish to return, no problem! We got your back as long as you send it back within 30-days of product arrival with proof of date of purchase and if possible date of product arrival. We do have a 15% restocking fee. We check our swings and stands thoroughly before we send them out; sometimes a connector part will be missing or damaged. If so, let us know immediately, we will send a replacement out right away. For missing and damaged parts, please contact us within the first 30 days of product arrival. We have a 90-day parts guarantee for replacements due to normal wear and tear or that may have malfunctioned on our end. Does not include parts damaged due to to abnormal use such as that which is covered in our Instruction/Disclaimer manual.
The weight limit for the swing itself is 300 pounds. Up to two people can use the swing at a time, but do not exceed 250 pounds when using the 3-Spring Trapeze System. If you wish to add more weight to the swing, remove the springs.
Hand wash all swing fabrics in cold water and gentle detergent. Lay out to dry – preferably not in the sun for more than a day or bleaching could occur. Do not bleach.
Yes, hanging your yoga swing from a door frame is certainly one option, although not the best one. We advise you check with a licensed carpenter or contractor to make sure the frame in question is structurally adequate and can hold the weight bearing load required for human suspension. Safety is of utmost importance, especially with inversions. If they give it a green light, use two strong six-inch long wood-work eye-bolts that are at least 7/16 inch thick screwed vertically all the way in to the wood. A pull-up bar installed in a doorway would also work, but again check with professionals for the strength and stability of the setup.
A doorway set-up restricts movement options for your swing – about an 85% loss of range of motion – but you would still be able to do quite a bit with it there including therapy and suspension training options.
Another note, the yoga swing without the Trapeze System is designed to hang from approximately a 7-foot minimum height. A yoga swing with the Trapeze System is designed to hang from a minimum of 8 feet high. Depending on the doorway and swing model, you could lose a lot of height. If your head touches the floor in inversion, just walk your forearms or hands forward until your head is lifted off of the floor to obtain a working inversion stretch.
Use our knobbed Daisy Chains to hang over any sturdy and locked door. Very much like a Yoga Wall, your swing will hang against a vertical support – which you can use as a prop for resistance and stabilization. The set-up is similar to how a TRX might be installed. This option limits possible movements on your swing but is great for quick home use or travel (eg. set-up in a hotel room).
See “Installing Your Swing” for more options
If you own the Trapeze System and/or Omni Stand, keep them out of the rain and rooms with lots of humidity. They will oxidize over time if exposed to extreme weather conditions.
Do not leave your swing out in extreme weather conditions. Be sure to use the swing’s carrying sack that it came with for storage or travel. You will be able to extend the life of your swing for many more years to come!
With inversion always go slow and easy. First timers may start in pelvic traction with the neck and shoulders completely on the floor. Start with a few seconds to few minutes, then gradually with each day slowly increase the angle to invert higher (at a more vertical degree) to your level of comfort.
Those who suffer from eye diseases (eg. glaucoma, detached retina, conjunctivitis, etc.), high or very low blood pressure, easy onset vertigo, recent head injury, middle ear infection, recent surgery (eyes, back or hips), sinusitis or head cold, hiatial hernia, ventral hernia, disc hernia, acute degenerative disc disease, spinal nerve root inflammation, cerebral sclerosis, a recent stroke, history of congestive heart failure, history of space-occupying brain lesion, propensity for fainting, those who use anti-coagulants, botox injections within 24 hours and pregnant women should consult a Physician before attempting any inversions.
YES, this is normal. This is common in people that are not used to hanging upside down, moving the head around quickly and those that are prone to motion sickness. If you are spinning on the swing (especially upside down) your ill-feeling can be due to fluid in the inner ear continuing to rotate causing a sense of continued spinning while one’s visual system no longer detects motion. Take care not to eat or drink anything heavy before your yoga swing practice and if you feel nauseous or dizzy, lay down on the floor and take a few deep breaths to center yourself. With careful practice this feeling should go away over time. If you suspect there is a bigger issue going on, please do not hesitate to contact your doctor.
All of our yoga swings are highly portable, none weighing more than 6lbs maximum. If you add the Trapeze System it is still easy to travel with, but expect to carry around 14 pounds. Traveling with your swing is a matter of personal preference, if you would like a more compact swing, the Omni Yoga Swing Original or Stretchy Swing are the way to go. If you want more suspension training, therapy and comfort options , then we recommend the Omni Swing Pro.
Many people like to warm up on the swing, but if you feel that you are not ready for this, please do a complete floor warm-up first. Take care not to overstretch cold muscles.
Some good 5-10 minute warm-up ideas: Vary your warm-up by mixing different moves.
1) Jog for 5 minutes
2) Walk for 5 minutes, gradually increasing speed to a light jog
2) Jump rope
3) Jumping Jacks
4) Head Rolls, shoulder rolls
5) Arm/torso rotations
6) Stretches such as lunges, forward bends, side stretches, butterfly stretch (sitting stretch that works the hips), etc.
Once you get more confident in your body’s agility, you can start to do all these warm-ups on the swing – including inversion!
YES! We get this question a lot, and we always give the same response. There IS a recommended weight limit of 250 lbs while using the 3-Spring Trapeze System. If you wish to add more weight, the swing itself supports up to 300 lbs, just be sure to remove the Trapeze System first. Many people who are overweight usually have back and joint issues. The Swing is an incredible therapeutic device for bad posture, back and neck injuries, weak abs and tight hips. It is also a great tool for weight loss including the option of removing the sling for your very own suspension fitness trainer.
It is not recommended that women practice inversions while menstruating. It IS recommended that women stay active during their menstrual cycle – moderate exercise is known to ease premenstrual tension and menstrual cramps. So that leaves all other swing options open. Women on their menses would do very well in restorative poses on the swing, starting out low and supported by the swing and foot stir-ups. Be intuitive. Enjoy creating new routines specifically for this time of the month!
1) Use fitness/exercise clothing you feel comfortable in and that does not have zippers, buttons or attachments that may rip or damage the swing fabric. We do recommend leggings or pants that cover the thighs and T’s or long-sleeves that cover the armpits. Do not use shoes on the Swing.
2) If it is cold, wear something that will keep your muscles warm throughout the workout to reduce the risk of injury. We don’t recommend socks unless they have grip on the bottom.
1) We recommend waiting 1/2 – 1 hour after a snack and 2-3 hours after a meal before using the swing especially for inversions. This also depends on how much and what you eat.
2) As a general rule try not to eat anything spicy or oily before your routine.
Avoid foods such as coffee or tea, high-acid juices such as OJ, most soups, meat, spicy/oily cuisines such as Chinese or Indian, anything deep or pan fried, oily dressings.
If you must get some alimentation in closer to your practice than you’d like, these are good choices: nuts, pretzels, banana bread, celery, cereal, dates, non-citrus fruit or fruit smoothie, 1/2 bagel, a bit of dark chocolate, sports nutrition bar.
